Video-sharing platform YouTube announced that it is working on a new feature that will allow viewers to watch videos from multiple angles. More specifically, viewers will be able to change the camera during a video.
Currently, the feature is only available on a single video: a live performance of Madilyn Bailey. However, the website is gathering requests from others who wouldn't mind test-driving this new element.
To the side of the main video, thumbnails of alternate views will appear. As the video begins, they'll disappear, allowing the viewer the full visual experience. Keyboard shortcuts will also allow camera switches. Though it requires heavier video production, this feature will create a much more dynamic viewing experience.
